Good ending to the arc, really showed off Rifuls size in that scene compared to the manga version, now business starts to pick up!

I do hope they insert a scene next ep before the intro that should've been shown after Galatea left....

Yeah! Episode 17 was really awsome! The fight between Clare, Jeane, Galatea, and Duff was thrilling! Clare is definately improving with each battle that she enters. I wasn't expecting Riful to enter....she's a damn beast!!! Clare put the blade right to her head and Riful didn't even flench!! To make matters worse, it seems like this guy Isley is even stronger that Riful!! How will Clare fight against the Dwellers of the Deep? The gap is just TOO HUGE!! I'm interested to see how the anime will handled Clare's power-up as she will definately need it.

Really, I'm running out of things to say about this series. Along with Gurren-Lagaan, this anime been great from the first episode. Each episode manages to exceed my expectations. Looks like the next arc will be even better as Clare has to....well you get the idea! I think the only chance that Clare would have against the Dwellers of the Deep is to actually "become" one herself. How that will happen, I don't know.

Very proud of myself that I've gotten this far without reading the manga.

It's not much of a spoiler to say all 3 Abyssal Ones (manga name) are around the same power level, the whole "war" thing came about because Isely "acquired" another strong follower in Priscila.

If they didn't cut the scene out from the manga you would realize the organization isn't just sitting back watching

Anyway enjoy, quite a few awesome scenes and twists coming your way over the next 2 arcs. I'm hoping they animate it to Rifuls latest appearance in the manga. She's a complete riot in those chapters.

Hmm...I see. If I'm guessing correctly, Priscilla must be as strong as Riful and Duff put together? Hence the fact that Riful trying to gain more "Awakened Beings" to help her fight the other two. Talk about total despair for Clare. She definately can't take on these monsters alone. I'm wondering what will happen exactly once or should I say if Clare manages to beat Priscilla? She would have to fight Isely as well? WTF!? This damn Priscilla is strong enough to where it has Riful searching for more warriors!!

Sorry if I sound a bit too estactic, but it's just amazing how much Clare will have to go through in order to reach her. Definatley looking forward to when she has to battle Priscilla, although I have a feeling that the anime won't make it that far.

Nah nah nah as far as you're suppose to know it's probably more like this

Isley/Riful/other one
Priscilla
Duff
Most awakened beings
Claymores
Yomas

I think Riful explains it better in the manga, she says something like Isley has gotten cocky since getting another strong ally and has been making moves lately.

Oh...okay. It makes sense since Isley has the most powerful ally on the battlefield right now. Duff is just a big crybaby!! I think that Riful will have a hard time finding an awakened being as strong as Priscilla. Still, we don't know too much information about the third Dweller of the Deep. What type of ally he/she has. It's clear that Clare will have to go under more severe training if she is to even stand a chance against Priscilla, let alone Isley. But that would require her to become an "Awakened Being"....I'm just having hard time figuring out how will she gain so much power to defeat those two.

I like the name Abyssal Ones rather than Dwellers of the Deep. It sounds like a cheesy porno flick! If the anime stick close to the Manga, the next two episodes should slow down on action and be story driven.

West I have finally started the "War of the North" arc. I think Undine is pretty cool. Also I have a question HIGHLIGHT:Who is the claymore crying in the corner???

ACE your going to drool over the Ligardes free for all!!! Tempt Tempt Tempt!!!

LMAO

Had a huge episode 18 post, but it got erased. Instead, I'll comment on the Claymore extra chapters in the manga first.

The first was really surprising. I understood that Teresa was strong, just by watching the anime. When I was finished reading the first chapter....I couldn't believe that she was THAT damn strong! To take out an Awakened Being without even breaking a damn sweat. She did it so casually...twisting Rosemary's arm off. I was like, you can't be serious. Makes you realize just how much she was holding back when fighting Priscilla. She was the "best warrior" of her time.

The second chapter wasn't too much of a surprise for me as most of it was told in the anime...Well, okay, it was a little bit. Again, another strong warrior rising to the ranks. Phantom Miria was on even ground with the number one warrior despite her ranking. Interesting to see how she got the Phantom name bestowed upon her. Oh yes let's not forget about Ophelia...that crazy woman!! She was strong too, but a little twisted in the head. It would've been interesting to seen Miria awaken and take on Ophelia. Glad she didn't. Now she's able to to walk with her new comrades with Hilda on her mind...

This is as much of the manga I'm going to read. At least untill the anime series is over which has 8 episodes left.

Alright! Now to comment on episode 18. Honestly, I'm running out of positive things to say about this series. Again, another thrilling, action packed episode. It was nice to see Helen, Deneve, Clare and Phantom Miria back together again. Before that though, right at the beginning of the episode. Whom is the Rafalea woman? She seems pretty strong for the fact that she can surpress her Yoki and was able to find Clare and Jeane. Kind of wanted to see Clare and Jeane take her on, especially after surviving that brutal battle. Clare gets scared too easily at times. Another thing, the organization is slowly revealing themselves as far as what they're trying to accomplish. Can't help but wonder what they have planned as far as taking on the Dwellers of the Deep.

That said, the organization sent 24 Claymores to the North to combat the Awakened Beings. The chances of success for this mission, as Miria stated, is zero. I somewhat spoiled myself a bit when I read the Claymore extra chapter part 2, so I know whom is coming out of this alive. I'm interested in how they survive this battle. Can't wait till the "Lion King" makes his apperance.

Yeah and Rosemary was a former #1 to boot, I keep telling people the organization underestimated Teresa's powers (irene pretty much said omg I underestimated her about 3 times in eps 7-8), just look at how she kept what she did from her handler.

Oh extra chapter 2 on miria so that leaves sept/october.... please galatea and raphaella!

That sucks though...only one chapter per month?! So that means the next Claymore chapter for the main storyline won't come until November. I'm having a hard time understanding why only one chapter is released per month. Berserk is famous for doing that as well.

Yeah I agree. I just hope when the series is over they complete it the right way. If they drop the series after the war of the north, then the should have enought material for a second season. A damn good one! TO me this is easily on par with Bleach and Naruto. Speaking of Bleach... over to the manga forum!!!
